Your rights

You have the right to request information, correction, deletion or limitation of your personal data from us in accordance with the statutory provisions. We also provide your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format. If we use your data on the basis of your consent, you can revoke your consent at any time and request the deletion of this data. After revocation, we will no longer use your data for this purpose. If we have a legitimate interest in processing your data, you may contact us concerning these contact details with a notice of objection. Notwithstanding the above, you can always contact the responsible supervisory authorities.

Right to object

Insofar as your data is processed based on legitimate interests according to Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR, you are entitled to object to the processing of personal data concerning you, provided there are grounds relating to your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data in the event of a justified objection.

Deletion of data

If your data are no longer required for the purposes mentioned or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons, we will delete them. Excluded from this are solely lawfully collected data which we are obliged to store for legal reasons. Please note that with each deletion, the data is initially only blocked and then finally deleted with a time delay in order to prevent accidental deletions or possible deliberate damage. For technical reasons, data may be duplicated in backup files and mirrors of services. Such copies may also be deleted with a technical delay.

Provision of our website

You can visit our website without providing any personal details. Every time a web page is accessed, the web server stores only automatically the IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, data volume transmitted in each case, the website from which the request comes, browser, operating system and its interface, as well as the language and version of the browser software. This data will never be saved specifically in relation to your person. These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. Insofar as the IP address is to be regarded as personal, it will be deleted after 90 days at the latest, unless there are other compelling reasons to the contrary.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via our contact forms on the website, we process the data provided by you in order to be able to answer your enquiry. A longer-term storage takes place only as far as your inquiry requires it. Otherwise, your data will be deleted after six months at the latest.

Some of the services offered by us are therefore available only to registered users. We collect the data provided by you in order to process registration and the technical administration of the portal. The amount of data depends on the information you provide. With your membership in the association you have been informed about the scope of data and the storage period.

Cookies

In order to make our website more user-friendly, we use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk associated with the browser you use and through which certain information is supplied to the site that places the cookie (here by us).

Cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of our website and to enable the functions you use. If we also use cookies for other purposes, we will explain to you here in our data protection declaration what we use them for.

You can make various settings in your browser for cookies, as well as prohibit them and delete set cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all the services of our website without cookies.

If third party cookies are used on this site, please refer to the services implemented here for more information.

Google Analytics

We use the tool Google Analytics from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Google Analytics uses text files stored on your device (so-called "cookies") to obtain information about your website usage. Google uses this information on our behalf to provide us with analyses of website usage, reports on website activity, and other services. The data collected about your website use by means of the "cookie" is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on its server in the US for analysis. It will not be merged with any other data that may have been stored about you at Google.

We also use the masking function "anonymizeIP". Before your IP address is transmitted to the Google servers in the US, it will be shortened within the EU. The unabridged IP address is transmitted only in rare cases and is then shortened on the servers in the US. You can prevent this processing by taking the following measures:

It is possible to set your browser so that no "cookies" are stored. However, this may mean that our website is not fully functional. Furthermore, a browser add-on from Google can be used to prevent data collection. You can find the add-on here: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, for example, if you use a smartphone and tablets, you can prevent data collection by Google Analytics by clicking here. This sets a cookie that prevents the collection of data. If you visit our website again with a different device or browser or have deleted your cookies, you must set the cookie again.

Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at
www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html . Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/ .

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
This prevents the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google.

Use social plugins from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn using the Shariff solution.

On our website, social buttons are used by social networks. This serves the protection of our legitimate interests in the optimum marketing of our service, which predominate in the context of a balance of interests. In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, these buttons are not fully integrated into the page as plug-ins, but only by using an HTML link. This integration ensures that no connection to the servers of the provider of the respective social network is established when a page on our website containing such buttons is called up. If you click on one of the buttons, a new window opens on your browser and calls up the page of the respective service provider, on which you can (if necessary after entering your login data), e.g., press the Like or Share button. Kindly refer to the privacy policies of the respective providers for the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by the providers on their pages, as well as the possibility of contact, and your rights and settings options in this regard to protect your privacy. www.facebook.com/policy.php https://twitter.com/privacy, www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy
